, also, secretary of state, hillary clinton defended the ambassador to the united nations, susan rice for complaining the attack in benghazi grew from a protest. recall that ambassador rice went on a number of sunday morning talk shows and said that preliminary intelligence indicated that extremists hijacked a protest over a low-budget video that mocked the prophet mohammed. today, secretary of state, hillary clinton said the white house doesn't, still, have a complete picture of what happened that night. >> ambassador rice had the same information from the intelligence community as every other senior official did. that's the very way that i'm answering your question today because we can only tell you what we know based on our most current understanding of the attack and what led up to it. >> several senior state department officials have said that they had never concluded the attack grew out of a protest over that anti-islam video. catherine, did we learn anything else from secretary of state, hillary clinton's comments today? >>reporter: she emphasized at a think tank in washington
is going to do other than to protect from the horrible things republicans are going to do. >> rose: clinton says if you have your fist in the other person's mouth they can't be talking. >> that is something the ryan people negotiated and wanted explicitly because they thought it is harder to to be a jerk when you are sitting next to someone but biden falsified that entire theory and you could tell where the debate was going right at the beginning when he said that is malarkey which told you how aggress stiff he was going to be and told you a little bit about the intellectual tone and when he brought up the 47 percent i remember listening to the answer and there were about 15 different things packed in there that ryan, you know, would take half an hour to explain and defend them all so that's the way he was a the aggressive but this kind of performance, charlie is not available to the president. he cannot be like this. >> rose: in twitter because of the style -- >> someone said on twitter of biden's performance this is not a pridential performance, it might be a vice presidential performance
to mention any minute we are expecting to hear from former president clinton at a rally in indiana. he is taking the stage right now. we'll get straight to this once it does happen. i do want to start with you because one way biden fired up last night is he hit on that 47% videotape. >> it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who has 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. >> romney is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country. with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> spirited debate there. joy ann reed? did he reset the clock? does the president start with a clean slate here? >> i think it's clear what joe biden had to do going into this debate was to refire up the base. much of the -- i think there was overcorrection in the media saying the base was completely dispirited. this week i think you saw a fired up base coming out of the debate. there was pearl clutching on the ritd
clinton stuck with that. they ran an advertisement, a tv ad which they put into pakistan. they said that at the dover air force base when the kafblgets of the ambassador and the others who were killed were right next to them and for joe biden to say he didn't know, jared, i'm sorry. for joe to say he didn't know they wanted more security, all of the evidence is pointing completely the other way. if you don't like my adjectives, fine, but all of the evidence is pointed in the wrong way. >> the outcome of the foreign policy discussion and this is a consensus i've heard from both sides is when paul ryan consistently said we don't like what they're doing at the end of the day, he didn't have any alternatives to say how he would do it differently. >> that's not right, jared. paul ryan, i don't think he was going lie to the american people. and what did charlie lamb testify? asked directly if the funding was the reason the contingent was right? she said no. >> because the budget cuts come later. you're right. >> hang on a success. i've got another tape and we'll switch subjects over to on
'. >> and the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton issued her congratulations to the eu after meeting with the italian prime minister. the discussed some pressing issues including syria and iran. for more on their talks, italy's prime minister joins me now. thank you for coming in. we appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> is it ironic that the european union wednesday peace prize just as it is under great crisis? >> i think it is highly symbolic. it is a great integration beyond the economic integration of the union. that is going to remain a fundamental factor. the nobel prize has been awarded because they wanted to recognize the fundamental importance of the union in keeping peace and security in europe for the last half a century and in my view, it is a promise for the future. >> yes, the future of the european union. would you not admit it is under strain? >> it has been under strain. hopefully it is coming to an end. not an easy and. what is going to happen in the european council next week is going to strengthen the governments of the eurozone, but also the governments of the europe
it is a risky move leaving secretary of state hillary clinton out on the lam. joining us to a former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, fox is contributor john bolton. ambassador, let's go first to the idea that when jay carney was trying to create some buffer, some comfort cause some zone by saying that vice-president biden was only referring to himself and the president of the united states when he said that he knew of no such request. your reaction? >> well, i cannot believe that. that is why there is a national security council staff at the going on at the state department at the defense department, to make sure that the critical issues are brought to the president's attention. this was obviously a very high-risk posed and, indeed, it was opposed where al qaeda killed our ambassador. the entire national security staff to list? biggest if so and his comments seemed to indicate that the maid is the state department's responsibility alone, want to know what is going to the mind of diligence and right now and, perhaps an even more importantly what is going to the mind of bill clint
hillary clinton vowed today that u.s. diplomats will not retreat from dangerous parts of the world. she spoke amid the ongoing questions about the attack in libya that killed four americans. after meeting with the italian foreign minister, clinton defended the administration's changing statements about the attack. >> to this day, to this day we do not have a complete picture. we do not have all the answers. no one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise. every one of us has made clear that we are providing the best information we have at that time. >> sreenivasan: clinton also defended u.n. ambassador susan rice, who initially said the attack started with a protest against an anti-islamic video. u.s. authorities now believe computer hackers based in iran carried out cyber-attacks on persian gulf oil and gas companies over the summer. the attacks crippled 30,000 computers at major companies in saudi arabia and qatar. and defense secretary leon panetta warned thursday of a possible "cyber pearl harbor". he promised "decisive action" to meet any threat. russia insisted today that
, hillary clinton asked about it today and said we knew what we knew at the time and investigating, she ducked the question. >> paul ryan came out among the more memorable lines is there's an act of terror against the united states we're going to call it what it is. this administration is caught in a lot of different explanations, complicated story, and you've got the intelligence community, state department and the white house. we cover washington. we understand there's a lot of competing voices when it comes to that. the buck stops at the white house with the president on these matters. and this was an act of terror as he says and there are a lot of different explanations. heated testimony about the fact that there were additional security requests. again this is just messy. i don't think -- look, martha raddtz asked direct questions i believe in moderators asking direct questions and getting answers. was it an intelligence failure. he didn't answer the question. and she did go back at a later point. this just -- they're just sewing more confusion about this rather than resolving the
. >> good one. sell that salesman at the top of the ticket and drives a couple cad laks. but bill clinton today, well, he was a bit incredulous about that line at an event in indiana. >> mr. ryan said last night that governor romney was a car guy. i thought, well, if having an elevator to stack them counts, i guess he was. >> now president clinton, don't you go down that line that mr. romney is just a plutocrat who will never get the 47% to take the responsibility for their own lives and car storage. paul ryan has got his back and will defend him to the gates of hell. >> mitt romney is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country, and with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> yes, except mr. romney only says what he means in quiet rooms. let's get right to our panel. here in new york msnbc contributor ari melber and msnbc political analyst karen finney, and in washington msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. karen, i must
the danger? and the need for protection? even secretary of state hillary clinton weighed in. here's abc's jake tapper. >> reporter: the vice president raised eyebrows and some outrage. when asked about the diplomats in libya whose rekwepss for additional security forces fell on deaf ears. >> they wanted more security there. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security there. we did not know they wanted more security again. >> reporter: "we" seemed an interesting pronoun for him to use, given that the very day before the debate, two of those security officers testified before congress about their frustrations with the state department. >> i asked for 12 agents, his response to that was, "you are asking for the sun, moon and the stars. >> reporter: today, mitt romney seized on biden's comments. >> when the vice president of the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony, of state department officials, american citizens have a right to know just what's going on. >> reporter: and the white house attempted to clarify. >> the vice president was speaking about hims
on the street with the clinton crime bill. this crowd wants to take cops away. i mean, there are so many differences between these two candidates tonight. these are two ideological titans going at it. it is going to be fun to watch, and i think the president's right. joe be joe, everything's going to be just fine. and i think the fact that they're sitting down is good. i've seen biden in person many times on the stump standing up. he gets a little carried away. sitting down tonight might be to his advantage. >> the thing i keep thinking about is what is going through paul ryan's head? when you think about it as a politician or public figure, who your peer group is you're trying to impress, paul ryan, right wing think tanks, conservative movement, ideological elements. is he going to go up on the stage tonight and renounce it all? that is the strategic chose made by the romney campaign. you're going to go up there and everything you've done since the first day you were a junior staffer on the hill to now, we want you to throw it out the window and do it in front of everyone. is he going t
'm struck by the fact that the two most important performances of this campaign-- bill clinton's and mitt romney's in that debate-- were the two wonkiests. somehow i think in a moment of great cynicism people like to be talked to in a serious powerpoint sort of way in which a lot of us in the media think oh, it's over their heads, they'll be bored. >> pelley: but don't be folksy? >> i wouldn't go too far away from the statistics and data which is ryan's home turf. >> the difference is bill clinton used the word arithmetic i've never heard paul ryan use the word arithmetic. arithmetic is a word understood by people who only went to the sixth grade or people with ph.d.s. it's one thing to be wonky and not to do it in obscure language that's off putting. i do think as well that the question of the vice president is always, judy, he's mr. august when he's chosen. joe lieberman was a popular choice in 2000 but the real test is mr. october, what he does in this debate. paul ryan was a popular choice among many conservatives but this is his moment of truth. and there's going to be a lot of nervo
's solve this. >>> i want to take you live to indiana and hoosierville. this is a rally bill clinton is taking part in today. it's actually for the indiana dec democrats and this is a get out the vote that president clinton is taking part in. he's got a busy schedule he's ahead of because he's taking part in a lot of events for president obama and joe biden. he's headed to arizona on wednesday and iowa later in the week, as well. so today this is an effort at a high school. it's north central high school on indianapolis' north side. let's listen in really quick. >> they started, as people enrolled, they started whittling down the profit margin because they realized that as soon as people could get the preventive services and people stayed healthier and the costs stayed down, you couldn't justify wasting the taxpayers' money on that kind of profit margin. so they got some new recommendations which as i said the aarp endorsed and we can cut this profit margin back down to $1.14 for every dollar you spend on regular medicare. in fairness, the people that started it said it ought to be e

of weeks and you know what will happen? if it's president obama second term, it won't be hillary clinton. >> dana: not only did they say -- bob, i'll get to you in a second. not only did they say that hillary clinton hasn't been seen for a while, she has said on the record, comments from her that they were determined to get to bottom of this. in the debate prep, is it too much to ask that the vice president of the united states actually be briefed on what has happened in the past month after the ambassador was killed and the front page of every national newspaper? >> bob: he should have been briefed. however, it's clear to me that there is no way vice president or president of the united states would know about request for security. every embassy in world was asking for more security. the republicans cut security around the embassies. >> dana: so embassy in poland asked for more security? >> bob: yeah. everybody was. >> brian: did you know that the answer -- i blame paul ryan for this, too. the day before it was asked, it was asked a question to lamb. funding have anything to do with the
clinton publicly defended her assertion that video started the attack. >> ambassador rice had the same information as every other official did. >> without mentioning al-qaeda by name, the suspected group behind the consulate assault, secretary clinton told the washington think tank what happens in north africa affects national security. >> last month violence revealed scrapes of extremism that threat -- strains of extremism that threaten the nation as well as the broader region and the united states. >> two sources tell fox news that security video taken by cameras like this one at the consulate also shows there was no demonstration when the attack unfolded. at approximately 9:3 p.m. surveillance video is characterized by limited, grainy and in places hoard decipher. it shows the men in profile and the efforts are ongoing to match faces to known jihadist. lawmakers are frustrated with the lack of access. >> i would like this committee to have the 50-minute tape before the press has it. quite frankly we should have had it before today to see it. >> two military sources tell fox news the

. a gallup poll at one point had him ahead of incumbent bush and a man by the name of bill clinton by 14. he left the race and returned in october for the debates and it's the second time that an independent candidate had participated. >> what separates me is that 5 1/2 million people came together on their own and put me on the ballot. i was not put on the ballot by either of the two parties or any pac money, any foreign lobbyist money or interest money. this is a movement that came from the people. >> on election day, nearly 20% of the vote, best showing since the progressives nominated eddie roosevelt 38 years ago. bill clinton won the vote. the same year, ralph nader launched a write-in campaign. nader's best showing was in 2000 when he received 2.9 million votes. gore won the popular vote that year. in florida, nader got over 97,000 votes. i would say that was enough to make up for the 537,000 gap that made up the race for george w. bush. some people called him a spoiler but nader hated the term. he blasted "the wall street journal," believe it or not, for using such a political bigoted
